Call for manuscripts in Dietetics and Global health.
It is one thing to have enough food to eat; it is quite another to eat the right food that the body requires to stay healthy and fit. While food security continues to be a source of concern for global public health, food-related complications and disorders are on the rise worldwide.
Almost every community has a special food that the people eat, but it is unclear why different people from the same community assimilate food differently. Because people differ, it is difficult to develop a universally acceptable policy on food consumption for everyone. Maintaining efforts to understand these individual differences in food assimilation will be critical in designing and implementing effective interventions for food-related diseases.
Diet and physical activity are important factors in aging well. Longer life expectancy has increased morbidity and mortality from chronic, lifestyle-related diseases worldwide. The massive global demographic, epidemiologic, and nutritional shifts highlight the critical need for preventative health care.
As a result, nutrition research is now emphasizing chronic disease prevention as well as nutritional deficiency correction. Functional fitness, or the ability to live an active and healthy life, is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. They provide a framework for assessing the population and individual nutrient sufficiency. In addition, the Healthy Eating Index provides a summary of diet quality. Health care practitioners must address all lifestyle and environmental factors that contribute to unhealthy food and lifestyle choices in order to optimize health as we age.
What this dietetics call is about
In this call, we will accept contributions that may help solve the mystery behind the disparities in the outcomes of food consumption in order to shed light on how to help many people, including those of normal weight, who dislike their appearance and wish to be slimmer, including people who have undergone severe body-shaping fitness programs or plastic surgery.
It would be helpful to provide answers to questions about harmful coping techniques associated with disordered eating, such as not eating enough to stay healthy, induced vomiting, excessive exercise to lose weight, laxative use, smoking or vaping to suppress appetite, and using appetite suppressants or illicit drugs.
While some of these solutions appear to help with weight loss or maintenance, we will welcome papers that explain why none of these methods help to maintain a balanced diet, a healthy weight, and general well-being but can be harmful to health and an eating disorder. We will welcome papers that address issues such as low income, lack of time to eat, limited food options, and unhealthy food selection because it is critical to understand the factors that influence a healthy lifestyle.
Papers submitted in response to this call may fall into, but are not limited to, the following thematic areas.
- Obesity interventions: a qualitative investigation of the promotion of healthy eating and physical activity
- An intervention strategy to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables among the elderly and vulnerable populations
- The nutritional requirements of pediatric cancer survivors are based on their diet composition.
